The problem arises if dom0 has less vcpus than a numa node. In this case
libxl_set_vcpuonline() will fail as the cpumap has more bits set than
the number of dom0's vcpus.

My patch will result in a call of libxl_set_vcpuonline() only in case
dom0 has more vcpus online than the number of cpus of node it is to be
restricted to.
